. you cannot blame anybody, not the moderator, jim lehrer, how he handled it, you cannot blame the remarks of romney. the president, i believe, fair warning is fair play. he knew exactly what kind of the bitter romney was. he only needed to look at the videotape from florida. he did everything wrong. the optics were wrong, looking down, not looking at him in the eyes. he did not have responses. he let mitt romney get away with saying things, like this $716 billion number for medicare. which was not true. he let him get away with that. >> he never even mention the last opportunity in the last few weeks, the 47% video. that was a gift to the obama campaign. they have been running ads across the country but the president never mentioned it once. >> that romney told sean hannity that he was sorry that he said that. >> it was a mistake. >> i never said this on television, but need is right. she actually stumbled on the truth. obama is not a good debater. it is not that obama was off his game. that is his game. he does not have a prompter, he is not good. you see this in press confer
game, and you cannot blame anybody, the moderator, jim lehrer, how he handled it, the remarks of romney. fair warning is fair play. he knew what kind of debater romney was. all he had to do was look at the videotapes from florida, and he did a lot of things wrong, the optics were wrong, looking down, he did not have the responses he should of had. he let romney get away with sayi things, like this comment on medicare, which was not true. >> he never mentioned the opportunity that he had in the last few weeks, the 47% thing. those are running across the country in ads. the president did not mention it once. >> mitt romney told shawn hammett the last night that that was a bad mistake, that 47% thing. he says he was sorry. >> i never said this on television, but nina is right. she stumbled on the truth when she said that obama is not a good debater. it is not that obama was off his game, that is his game. if he does not have a prompter, he is not good. you see it in his press conferences where he does not have a prompter. he has never been good at conferences. he rambles. the press has bee
, everyone. i'm jim rosenfield. we begin tonight, though, with the mystery surrounding the disappearance of 17-year-old brian glenn, supposed to play in today's homecoming football game in fairfax. instead, dozens gathered for a vigil after the game looking for answers. darcy spencer is live in fairfax tonight and spoke to brian's family about why they believe there's a lot more to this story. darcy? >> reporter: jim, there are a lot of questions surrounding this disappearance, but relatives tell me there's one thing they know for sure. that he did not run away. they say it's something he's never done before, and that is not in his character. that homecoming game played right here at his high scale ho and that's something he would never want to miss. ♪ dozens of students and parents turned out for a vigil for missing teen brian glenn. the 17-year-old senior did not show up for the wt woodson homecoming football game. he's a kicker for the team. >> i saw one of this friends kicking a kickoff that usually he does, and i almost broke down then. it was tough. >> reporter: glenn has been mi
a lot of this depends on jim lehrer. i think how aggressive will he be in the questioning and follow ups? will he become a bipartisan advocate going after inconsistencies? >> jennifer: the format is a little more flexible. so there's an opportunity for mitt romney to not only get his licks in but in response to the president as well. and if he doesn't come out swinging, i think he has let an opportunity pass. >> cenk: and on the other hand john, he can overstep if he is too disrespectful to the president. >> john: of course. yeah i'm here for zinger watch 2012. and i found it curious when his campaign leaked that he was rehearsing his ad libs a few days ago. but it's worth pointing out governor romney has only debated democrats twice in his career. he did a great job in the primary season not getting too flustered. but when you are being pummelled by seven other candidates it's pretty tough unless it is gingrich, santorum and bachmann. >> when they said zingers, i didn't interpret it that he was going to come out and be funny. because he is not a funny guy. >> r

to jim lehrer? he might as well not even showed up last night. he lost control of the debate and mitt romney ran all over him like a truck crushing a bug. we don't need a moderator for the next debate. we didn't have one last night. we'll talk about it, who won who lost, is it going to change anything. first, let's take a little time out to get the latest, today's current news update as always from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill, welcome back. it is a good day to be back. good morning everyone. with the first debate under their belts the candidates are back on the campaign trail today. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap.
'm again ifil. >> woodruff: and i'm judy woodruff. tonight's debate will be moderated by our own jim leerer and will start a little over a minute from now, from the magness arena. >> after the debate we'll talked to arrow shapiro and scott horsily in denver, and christina bellantony. >> woodruff: you can follow along online on our live stream and live plog. two very quick thoughts from mark and david. mark, it come downs to this. >> in a rare race it's become increasingly a referendum on the challenger rather than the incumbent. can the challenger mitt romney make this a referendum on the president. >> who has the toughest job? >> romney. maybe jim lehrer. format i love. much more demanding on jim but better for us. >> ifill: we're looking forward to what jim has to say tonight. it's a big night and we'll go to the convention hall and hoar from our own jim lehrer. >> lehrer: good evening, from the ma nag mess arena in colora. i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama, the democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, the
. jim, i am looking at the combined experience appear of covering washington, all the baloney that its issue here. we have among us more than a century of dealing with these kinds of issues. jim, your prediction. what are we going to hear in the debate? >> there is a pattern here. you can see that it follows the social science dictum that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. as a wire service guy, i am not in the prognostication business, but i feel fairly safe going out on a limb in a couple of things today. eight months ago, in the state of the union speech, obama issued an appeal to congress to spend more federal money on construction projects that would generate jobs. what he said was, take the money we are no longer spending at war. use half of the to pay down our debt. use the rest to do some nation building right here at home. we pointed out in a fact check that night the fallacy of that idea. the idea that some kind of budget surplus is going to be created when you stop the wars is fiscal fiction. those wars have been primarily financed by borrowing. if you s
>>> good afternoon. i'm pat lawson muse. >> i'm jim handly. it's about time, and it's got all of washington buzzing. fan favorite teddy finally got his win today. >> he's lost more than 500 presidents races since the team came to washington. but now number 26 can chalk up one win on his record. there have been rumors for the past week the team would finally let him win. the nats even labeled the series against teddy in 2012. should teddy have won or stayed a permanent underdog? weigh in by voting on our nbc washington facebook page and let us know. >> he was jumping. but pretty humble in the end. >>> now we've got a warning today about a computer scam. the federal trade commission is cracking down on telemarketers who prey on people concerned about their computers. >> they call offering to remove viruses, or spyware from your computer. that doesn't exist. you pay for it, and as danielle lee reports, they get access to your pc, and your credit card. >> reporter: the scam starts with a phone call. on the other end, an individual often from india, posing as a technical support. t
the search scene with the latest on this search. pat? >> reporter: jim, some of the police are still out searching, others are back there getting debriefed. it's been more than three days now. no sign of brian glen. and the concern here continues to grow. they searched last night, and they were back again today. this time with more cops. and that helicopter again. looking all around the park trying to find brian glen. >> do you think he's in harm's way? >> it's hard for me to believe that he would go this long without contacting us if he weren't. and we had no reason to believe that he's a runaway. >> reporter: brian glen a senior. monday morning he dropped his younger brother off and kept on going. a short time later he went to this dunkin' donuts. the next day his car found here at the park. but no sign of brian glen. surveillance video shows that on monday morning, about 8:00 a.m., brian went to this dunkin' donuts, and bought six doughnuts. he walked away, and a short time later came back and bought a bottle of water. his parents think that's unusual, because in his car, he had his l
. but others have made moderator jim lehrer the target of their criticism arguing he let the argue get out of control. tonight derek says he defies any of those folks to do it any better. >> yeah, anita, i know this because i've done it before it. several times. i tell you, in politics the debate moderator is a lot like the king of england. fancy title. not much real power. once i moderated a debate during which an uninvited candidate came on stage to take part. i looked in vain to the organizers to do something. when they shrugged, what was i going to do? i waved him on in. homeboy was a nut. i think he had a few beverages. back in the '90s, i hosted a radio discussion which included, by the way, yes, that was me, it included then mayor marion barry, and when he repeatedly ignored my instructions and my warnings and kept right on talking, i finally had the engineer to cuts microphone. that's what i had to do to corral one big city mayor in an environment i completely controlled. so imagine jim lehrer that in debate hall. he can't cut anybody's microphone and he's dealing with the presiden
romney says big bird's got to go along with jim lehrer. >> does anyone think it's strange that juan is defending pbs? >> i'm not saying. >> that's it for us, thanks for watching, have a great weekend, bye. >> did mitt romney's post debate victory hit a speed bump with the unemployment rate? we'll break down what the numbers mean. this is special report. good evening, i'm bret baier. president obama is hailing the jobs report, showing a drop from 8.1% to 7.8, as a sign the country has come too far to turn back now. his republican challenger says the new numbers are not the sign of a true recovery, in fact, he says they're telling a far different story. the government's household survey says that 873,000 people entered the work force. but the employer survey found 114,000 new jobs created, 10,000 of those in government. so, the difference, about 760,000 are apparently not full-time stable jobs, what's known as the real unemployment mark, the unemployed and those too discouraged to look for work remains unchanged at 14.7%. white house correspondent wendell goler begins our coverage of
. after claiming viktry in his first debate with president obama. let's bring in jim acosta. >> after a couple of days of positive reviews, mitt romney is running into political news that may be blunting some of that momentum. the jobs report is taking away a key line of attack for the gop contender for months. romney has said the president has failed to bring the nation's unemployment rate below 8% but romney found a new way to crunch numbers here in virginia. >> campaigning in virginia coal country, mitt romney tried to dig through the latest jobs number to make the case president obama has not pit pay dirt just yet. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. and the unemployment rate has come down very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> still, one of romney's key metrics on the president's handling of the economy went up in smoke, when the nation's unemployment rate dipped below 8%. >> 8% unemployment for over how many, 43 mont

is jim lehrer of pbs. the debate is structured into a series of 15 minute questions, many focusing on the economy. the economy gets the first half of the debate, with questions 1, two, and 3. then they move on to the topic of health care, which has major economic impact, the role of government in our society, and the final segment will be on the governing cells of the candidates. jim lehrer can assign the final questions. there was a coin toss to decide who would take the first question. president obama has won that and will take the first question. we would like to involve you in the process and talk about this important debate, what you will be looking for from candidates, whether or not you have already made your decision. most particularly, if you had a chance to ask a question on this domestic policy debate, what would you most want to know from these two men? let's introduce you to our first guest. from inside the debate are -- the senior political reporter for yahoo news, who has been on the campaign trail with governor romney. >let me start with a pc filed recently, is sens
at him. >> steve: he would look at jim lehrer like he is taking too much time. >> brian: i thought it was telling and you saw a guy that did one thing and i thought the b.b.c. katy k who never said anything nice about a republican. president obama has spent millions was dollars trying to show that governor romney was not worthy of being president. governor romney showed he was worthy and he is competent and all of that money was wasted to any of the 60 million who watched. >> steve: that's the beauty of seeing them side by side unfiltered and uninterrupt no commercials. in 30 second sound bites you can try to defend or define your opponent and that's what the president has done. last night, gretchen, when the president of the united states am mitt romney want to cut taxes for rich guys. mr. romney said mr. president, that is not the case. >> i know you and your running mate keep saying that and it is popular to say. but it is not the case. i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true and keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe
. moderator jim lehrer is with long time adviser, peter flaherty. at the opposing podium, president obama is played by rob portman, who spoke exclusively to cnn. >> you have to be a little mean sometimes and try to get under their skin. >> portman is the republican's go to guy. in 2000, he played al gore and joe lieberman. in 2004, john edwards and in 2008, he was so in character as barack obama, he really upset john mccain's wife. you have to tell me the story about cindy mccain. >> she was very good about attending debate preps and being with john. at one point, literally walked out. we knew she was walking out on purpose because i was going after her husband. >> it was too much for her to take. >> she still doesn't like me to this day. >> romney's been getting that portman treatment for more than a month. >> after the hour and a half is over, i want to kick him out of the room. >> sources close to romney say this is his danger zone. his tendency to get defensive, which produces gaffes. remember this? >> it was true then. >> no, rick, i'll tell you what -- 10,000 bucks? >> reviewed romn

construct like we were in some sort of ideological debate. stocks are good. >> the data has jim mixed this week, but we did get numbers mixed and consumer confidence is good and unemployment and yet, jack welch, the former ceo of general electric as you just mentioned on squawk out on twitter today. he's been obviously critical of the white house for years now, but he says unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. that's the former head of a very large company. >> i'm on tv, and i remember jack sent me a fax when i was first on with mark haynes. i like you. i love jack. i'm trying to reconcile jack with the numbers because i trust jack and think he's terrific. i come back and say listen, they've been wrong -- he's jack. i don't think that they're phony. it doesn't make me feel that jack is off the reservation so much that i think that this particular issue -- i disagree with him. i read the tweet and i was, darn, jack, come on, man. >> let's say good is good. >> does this mark the turning point and we had david come out this mornin
